As promised, here are some pictures of the turban. While I was at it, I also thought I’d publicly humiliate myself with pictures of a few other items of headgear I’ve been sporting lately. Please excuse the roots.
My turban is from Purely Wigs, who are, obviously, primarily a wig company. I got it as a press gift through work, and although I can’t see the turban online at the moment, you should call them if you’re interested – they’re very nice, and I know that the turbans are available. I think there’s another colour choice, and what with them being a wig company, you can also get one with a fringe! Actually, the fringe attachment serves a purpose – the turban is designed primarily for those who’ve lost their hair through medical treatment, or who have a thinning hairline. Clever, huh?
I picked this daisy headband up in Primark for the princely sum of £1. It reminds me of being 11/Drew Barrymore/Miss Selfridge/all the good things growing up in the 90s promised.
I went there. I don’t own a car anymore, but if I did, this would obviously be what I wore as I pootled around. I picked this headscarf up in Beyond retro for a couple of quid at the weekend, and got Twin a matching one. I don’t know if the photo shows it. but it is a proper hood – not just a scarf knotted around. The perimeter is padded so it sticks out around your head, and it even kinda sits on your head without being tied. I anticipate it will come in very handy for protecting my repertoire of updos on the way to work this spring.
Not new, but unposted I believe. This Dorothy Perkins hat has become a firm staple in my wardrobe since it got its first airing – in this picture, actually. I’m away with work in this flattering picture, and suddenly realised that Wagner was on X Factor. What a treat! I’ve just checked, and depressingly the hat is now a mere £5 in the sale. I find it hard to imagine a time before this hat, so I can confirm its wearability. In fact, I might buy another, for future use.
